rnc day two

I missed it, but apparently some folks at the Republican National Convention last night were wearing band-aids in conspicuous places. Supposedly, you could see them in the audience, waving their band-aid-covered hands and elbows in front of the cameras. Apparently, its a little inside joke among the Republicans in New York, a little jab at Kerry for having sought medical attention for his superficial wounds during Vietnam… I suppose its hilarious in some circles that Kerry, that pussy, complained about the tiny little pieces of burning-hot metal flying through his flesh. Certainly, former male cheerleader, George Bush would have suffered though more pain without so much as a whimper if not for that fact that the Lieutenant Governor of Texas used force to keep him from enlisting.

And, Id like to know, where were all the delegates at the Democratic National Convention who were running around with tiny cocaine straws dangling from their noses? Surely there were some. Surely, the Republicans cant have all the assholes on their side.

I didnt mention it last night, but Rudy Giuliani claimed, from the RNC pulpit, that one of his first thoughts after the World Trade Centers were attacked was, Thank God George Bush is President. Clearly, thats a lie, and it sickens me that hed agree to take the rhetoric to such extremes in order to more tightly interweave 9/11 and the Bush presidency. Giuiliani didnt think for a moment, in those first minutes, about Bush or his response. He thought about the people jumping out of the buildings to the pavement around him and he thought about what might happen next. He thought about the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Wall Street. He thought about biological weapons. He was thinking about his city and what had to be done in order to keep control. He was not, Im quite sure, thinking, Were so lucky that we have George Bush to protect us. To claim such a thing is beyond belief. And, the fact that some people will believe it makes me want to leave this planet.

So, with all of those things in mind, I wanted to watch Schwarzeneggers address tonight. Try as I might, however, I just couldnt make it. I didnt even get close. After watching Bill Frist promising a freer America under Bush, I moved my chair to the other side of the room. (Freer than what, I wondered. Freer during his second administration than during his first? Doesnt that imply that were not so free right now?) Then, from across the room, I heard a former reality-tv personality talking about how president Bush was very much against breast cancer, implying, I suppose, that Kerry was all for it… With this, I headed toward the TV to shut it off, but, in the process of doing so, I heard George Bush in a prerecorded ad spot say of his wife, She loves reading, and that perhaps the most important reason to vote for him this November is so that Laura Bush can be the first lady for another four years Dumbfounded, I decided to keep watching. I then dropped to the couch and listened to an impassioned defense of Bushs tax cuts and all about how they would allow all of us watching to create legacy wealth. (Im sure the people working at Wal-Mart appreciate that.) That same fellow then said, under Bush our children are learning again. (Was there a period under Clinton when kids didnt have to go to school?) And then, ultimately, he said, you cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. And thats when I got up to turn off the TV. Someone else will have to let me know how Arnold did. All the nonsense just wore me down like kryptonite. I cannot believe that they can get away with this.
